Route: Seefeld Kurark - Andreas-Hofer-Strasse - Rosshütte valley station (parking slot) - Woldrichsteig/Hermannstal - Rosshütte panorama restaurant.

Starting from Seefeld's Kurpark, this educational rock path leads over seven stations through the Hermannstal valley and up to the Rosshütte panorama restaurant. At the total of seven way stations, various rocky fines from the region are presented and their origin and composition are described: Granite and mica schist, flasergneiss, metaandesite and biotite gneiss - expert knowledge you can touch.
From the start at the Kurpark, the Andreas-Hofer-Strasse first leads eastwards and then left at the traffic circle to the parking lot of the Rosshütte cable cars at the back. Cross this straight ahead and change between the two buildings on the ski run. After two comfortable serpentines, the trail changes to the Woldrichsteig through the Hermannstal valley and, after crossing it, finally takes the access to the left to the panoramic restaurant Rosshütte. With a beautiful view of the mountains, you can end the hike here in comfort, enjoy wonderful delicacies on the sun terrace and can then also take the mountain railroad downhill quite comfortably.
